Terrible Service
I am very surprised at a top-notch retirement having not cared for my Mom. I had given them all the details of my mother's shrimp allergy instead when Fish was cooked they refused to give her this dish as a part of her food. When this retirement home wanted to make money they should have included all foods as per my Mums requirements. Why do children leave their parents in the hands of these retirement home they are pricey, make money the easy way and do not bother about Seniors My mother's age will not allow her to eat the whole dish. They gave her no substitute for this. I have written a complaint about this retirement home and will put a 0 review. Terrible and should not be allowed to operate. I think this gives MOM a place a bad taste and they should not suggest this retirement home to any Seniors

A good choice for my mom
Very welcoming environment for my mom. When she first moved in they made sure to keep a watch on her to make the transition smooth and enjoyable. She loves the food, the activities and the friendliness of all staff.

Well maintained and appealing facility. Dining facilities and common areas spacious and appealing. Good and probably the most varied list of activities I've seen available to residents. 1 Bedroom layouts are not the best. Chopped up with a lot of hallway space vs living space but well appointed and modern. Do not allow any cooking ability in rooms at all for safety but restrictive for residents.

A lovely place to stay.
Walking into Retirement Villas by the Lake you get the impression of light, comfort and coziness. The residents seem happy and active. The sales manager was extremely friendly and helpful. The food is good, and the rooms are comfortable, and the staff is very helpful.

Wow is all I can say about this complex, quite unique with each apartment a different lay out. Intimidating to some elderly due to high ceilings but once overcome by this, extremely tasteful and well renovated, keeping to the old style of the building. Smaller complex of about 85 units and so not for those who like plenty of people around. Food menu was for every type of taste. I liked their own in house "Bus" service. [Removed] was a great show master.

Our contact was Gillian and she could not have been more helpful listening to my sisters needs. We took my sister to three other retirement homes and Retirement Suites by the Lake far surpassed the others. The feeling of energy when you enter the building with always a friendly smile from all the staff. Being that customer service is a thing of the past it reinstates my faith with all the staff at Retirement Suites by the Lake. I look forward to all my visits to see my sister. Keep it up!

We have been very pleased.
We have been very pleased. It's clean and the staff is friendly. There have been some changes in the staff, and that kind of put a damper on activities for a while, but that seems to have picked up now, and I see lots of activities going on now. The residents seem very happy with the food. I loved the individual suites, the size and the brightness of it. I liked the staff. I love that you could see the lake. It seemed more like an apartment than a home, and I liked the feel of it, we knew this was it right when we walked in.

Tips for evaluating your community options

Safety is a primary concern when seniors and their families look for Assisted Living. To ensure that a community meets your needs and expectations, we recommend that seniors and family members:

  • Tour the location: Touring allows you to speak to current residents and staff, and helps you confirm the accuracy of the community description and photos. Use our touring checklist to help guide your visit.

  • Confirm the availability of required services: Before you commit, make sure that the community offers all the services your senior needs, and that those services can be provided within your budget.

  • Know the Ontario regulations for Assisted Living: Each state has its own laws and inspections processes to ensure seniors reside in a safe environment. Depending on your state, you may even be able to look up inspection reports for the community(ies) you’re considering. Learn more about Ontario regulations for Assisted Living.
